Financial Education is vital for all investors young and old. The government gives great incentives for us to save and invest in by using things like an IRA or a 401k plan, but it offers no education on how to invest.
Chatham, NJ (PRWEB) January 08, 2015
DriveWealth is pleased to announce its partnership with Gordon Scott, well-known financial author and expert, to provide financial education to its clients.
Gordon Scott is co-author of Invest to Win, which teaches investors how to evaluate the market and make informed investing decisions. He served as the Content Director and Curriculum Developer for Investools from 2007 to 2010. Investools later went on to merge with ThinkOrSwim, which was purchased by TD Ameritrade.
"Financial Education is vital for all investors young and old. The government gives great incentives for us to save and invest in by using things like an IRA or a 401k plan, but it offers no education on how to invest.” Said Gordon Scott. “Each individual needs to learn what makes prices change in the stock market if they want to invest their money there. Fortunately with the right education that isn't so hard to learn."
Gordon Scott is committed to teaching individuals about investing. He has advised over 1,000 individuals regarding their personal finances and currently works with Beacon Learning Group as a financial coach. Gordon also currently serves as the Managing Director of the Charted Market Technicians (CMT) Program for the Market Technicians Association (MTA.org), a professional society for market analysts. Through his partnership with DriveWealth, Gordon Scott is creating a series of educational articles and videos available to investors worldwide.
“Through this partnership, DriveWealth strengthens its commitment to helping individuals gain the confidence to invest,” said Brian Dolan, Head of Financial Education at DriveWealth. “By partnering with premier educators, we hope to help them take control of their financial futures.”

All investing carries risk. Past performance is not indicative of future returns, which may vary. Investments in stocks and ETFs may decline in value, potentially leading to a loss of principal. Online trading has inherent risk due to system response and access times that may be affected by various factors, including but not limited to market conditions and system performance. An investor should understand such facts before trading. The risks associated with investing in international securities, including US-listed ADRs and ETFs that contain non-US securities include, among others, country/political risk relating to the government in the home country; exchange rate risk if the country's currency is devalued; and inflationary/purchasing power risks if the currency of the home country becomes less valuable as the general level of prices for goods and services rises.
Before investing in an ETF, an investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expense of the investment company carefully. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment company. You should read the prospectus carefully before investing.
